The Great Mistake Horn ad y Made ta
Namlaf the Train He Wanted.
"Talking of slow trains." said Hornady,
fanning rigorously, "it used to take Lou
isiana to run slow. I was in a little coun
try town there a few years ago and want
ed to get to New Orleans mighty bad. 'How
soon will the train for New Orleans be in?'
asked I of the station agent, who was split
ting rails on the platform.
" 'Which train do you want to take?'
aays he, with a drawl like a funeral pro
cession. " 'Well, said I, 'I thought I would take
the noon express.'
" 'Today's noon express?' asked he lan
guidly. " 'Yes, of course,' said I with a snap.
Is it in yet?
" Oh, Lor, no, said he.
"'Well, then, said I, 'I'm tired and
sleepy, being up two nights. Will you
call me in time for my train if I go inside
and snooze a little while'
"'Certainly, says he. 'There's plenty
"So I went inside and fell into a doze,
while he went on splitting rails. After
awhile a noise woke me up, and just as I
scooted out onto the platform a pa--senurer
train pulled ont of sight around the New
"'Here,' said I, 'why didn't you call me?'
" 'That, wasn't your train,' said he coolly,
nd went on splitting rails.
"I apologized and went back to sleep
again. A little after there came another
racket outside. I hurried out. A passen
ger train was just starting away. 'What
train is this?' I yelled to the conductor.
'The New Orleans express,' says he. I
made a wild dash for the platform.
" 'Hold on there, whooped the station
agent, 'that ain't your train.'
" 'Ain't my train?' I asked, astonished.
'I'd like to know why it ain't my train.
It's going to New Orleans and the con
ductor says it's the express. It's my train.
" 'Well, I tell you it ain't, says he posi
tively. " 'Why ain't it?' demanded I.
" 'Didn't yen say you wanted to take
this noon's express? asks he.
" 'Yes, sir,' said I anerily.
" 'Well, ain't today Wednesday?' asks he.
" 'It is,' said I. 'Hut'
" 'Well, then, stranger,' says the station
agent softly, 'you can just trot inside and
go to sleep aain.'
'"But I want to go to New Orleans,
" 'That's what I heard you say,' says lie.
'You want to take today. Wednesday,
noon's express, and I reckon I will call you
" 'Hut what about those two trains that
have just gone through,' I said, puzzled.
"'Oh, them ain't your trains. Them
were yesterday and day before yesterday's
"'Yesterday and the day before yester
day's trains" I exclaimed. 'What the
nation do yon mean, man'
" 'Well, you see, stranger,' said he with
his drawl, 'the trains on this road are a
little slow. That first train that passed
was Monday evening's accommodation,
and this iast one was Tuesday morning's
" 'Well,' yelled I, grabbing a telegraph
pole for support, 'then in the name of
heaven when does my train come along?'
" 'Hum-m-m!' says he, picking up a st rap
of paper and figuring a little with a stump
of pencil, 'I reckon today's noon express
will get in here about Friday evening if
there ain't no accidents."' Cincinnati
What Is Done with Rabbit Skins.
What use is made of rabbit skins?
Why, the hat on your head is made of
them. The hair is plucked off the pelt by
hand. A fort line awaits the man who can
invent a machine to do it. A fine blue fur
is then left on the pelt. The skin is then
pared away from the fur by delicate ma
chinery, m.ichineiy so fine that when the
last paring iscut off the fur sometimes
liauirs in one filmy section. This is worked
tip into felt. Ordinary hats are male from
rabbit skin. A lietter class is made from
hare skin. The lest, are made from the
nutria, a kind of water rat trapped in
Buenos Ayrcs. and then come beaver and
musquash, obtained in the I'nited States
The cowboy wants the best hat, in the
world, and as he pays for it he gets it. The
nutria felt stands wet and remains stiff
brimmed after soaking, lieeause it is made
from the fur of a water animal. The
American jackrabbit is of no use at all to
the trade. The Knglish rabbit supplies
the liest fur, like silk, but of course not
waterproof. Then comes the New Zealand
rabbit, followed by the Australian. In
terview in r?n Francisco Chronicle.
An A n eel Fish a CannibaU.
A novelty at the zoological gardens is a
specimen of the "angel fish," which has
la-en placed in a tank along with a num
ber of flounders. The habits of the fish
suggest that it is an antrel remarkably
well disguised, for it is one of tiie most
ferocious and bloodthirsty fishes extant.
Small though the specimen at the zoo is.
it is quite possible that the tank where ii
lives may Ik- the scene of a tragedy, for
flounders nd flat fish of various kinds are
precisely the diet which this creature pre
fers. The lisii has also received, for an
equally inscrutable reason, the name of
"monk fish." The ln-st name of the many
which it enjoys is u shark ray. The crea
ture is intermediate in its form between
the flattened rays and the sharks. London

A party were drivint? one eveuitiir on a
country road when they Ijecame aware, on
approaching a house, that a cornet player
was practicing. They stopped the horses,
and for some time listened, in hope of
hearing something more musical than the
single stn.y notes, evidently given with
great vigor, w hich reached t hem. When,
after a time, they decided to proceed, one
of the party said regretfully, "I expected
any moment to hear him burst into a benu
tiful piece," which brought the rejoinder
from anot he.-, "Or to burst into beautiful
pieces." Harper's Bazar.
